NICE GUYS – our buds – we released their first 7″ and have seen them play 109 times. the nice boys might be at the peak of their noisy rock n roll powers if their 10 yr anniversary show was any indication. new album on the way????

KLYAM SHOW AT CHARLIE’S KITCHEN MONDAY 6/27!

Allow us to bring our Summer festivities indoors for an enviable show at the unrivaled Charlie’s Kitchen in Harvard Square where Mondays never have to suck.

The date is June 27th (yeah, next Monday night) and we’ve got one for you: two wild oldies cover bands and the wildest punk band in New England. Read on.

The debut of Pledge Pins – slop frat rockers cutting all the slack of garage classics. One to two minute blasts and on to the next.

Johnnie and the Foodmasters are cut from a similar cloth as PP; while the Pins are minimal, the 6 piece Elvis worshippers may be a described as a little bit much!

And what about RONG? Oh just the best punk band in Boston. Will give you the jitters like all the Boston underground noize greats and provoke inexplicable dancing and grooving.

Come through at 9 PM for $5. 21+
